Life is an exam for an average Indian student. Your 10th Board followed by 12th Boards each of these set of exams are followed by what one can call “The Great Depression”. It is too hot to step outside, and on a bad day it is too hot to survive even indoors! TV is dying a slow death thanks to Netflix and Amazn Prime. Then there is that one relative who wants you to forecast how much you are going to score. You in your mind are praying that your forecast of the question paper and the answers are right. Then there is a “Sharma ji ka Beta” who always manages to score an absurd percentage! No doubts there. Over the years, Sharma ji ka beta has become the unit of analysis for intelligence. No matter what you do, Sharma ji ka beta will always be one step ahead of you, miraculously.
Now that exams are over, there’s a lot of time in your hands to think about ‘what next’? Students who opted for science stream must be writing their entrance exams. While the others who are waiting for the results to apply to the famed Delhi University have a lot of free time. We have made a list of things that you can opt for:
Find a hobby and stick with it no matter how bad you are at it. Be it cooking, singing, dancing, painting, pottery, archery. Anything all at that catches your fancy. But just remember one thing, every senior in College will ask you your hobby. And if its singing or dancing or one of the performing arts, they ARE going to ask you to perform. Thank us later for the early heads up!
